Berger: Rockets Want To Trade Up For Drummond or Lillard?

60
Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Houston Rockets could be stockpiling picks in order to trade up above the Portland Trail Blazers so that they can draft UConn center Andre Drummond or Weber State guard Damian Lillard. ----------------------------- Among several avenues the Rockets are exploring would be a trade with Sacramento for the No. 5 pick in a deal that likely would send Tyreke Evans to Houston, sources said. The teams have discussed several scenarios, and while one person briefed on the talks described the deal as "getting close," rival executives have gotten the strong impression that the Kings are steadfastly resisting the Rockets' overtures. Word in front office circles has been consistent that the Rockets' target is Connecticut 7-footer Andre Drummond, although some executives openly wondered Wednesday if that was a smokescreen. Welcome to the 24 hours before the draft. It's possible that Houston's real target is Damian Lillard, whom the Trail Blazers are believed to covet with the sixth pick, sources said. ----------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
